About

Professor Malliaris is currently doing research in the area of asset price bubbles and financial instability. The recent Global Financial Crisis demonstrated that the U.S. housing boom during 2001-2007 and the large volume of mortgage backed securities that were issued could not be sustained. When the housing bubble collapsed during 2007, financial markets destabilized particularly when Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy in September of 2008. An important policy question is: how should monetary policy respond to asset bubbles to prevent financial instability when such bubbles burst.
